Price is now $150per person tent camping, the cheapest place we could find in the whole area(waiting for mail, longer stay). All prices in area have taken a hike after covid.
As others said, very basic showers/toilet set up, being your own Tp, communal kitchen and sink to wash dishes. No power. Trees and a few tarps/palapa roofs offer shade, nice sea breeze stops you from overheating. Chill vibe and nice owner

the place is very basic, toilets and shower are a bit dirty but it has very nice vibes, the owner is very friendly. we where staying with a small Van and that was ok, I would park in the corner of there parking lot for a little bit more privacy. Not really a place to park long-term with your van. For tents you have more space, near to the beach.

We didn't stay.
If you want to sleep in your van, you have to stay in the small parking lot.
Tent area is nicer and closer to the beach but it is very crowded. As is the whole area.

What a great little spot hustled between expensive hotels for 100p. Camping is right on the beach under the shade of trees. Very clean and basic, with cold showers, Bucket flushing toilets, fire cooking and no wifi or electricity! We loved it here!! Max was very friendly and helpful greeting you with a smile. Recommend camping here.

Great spot for rustic beach camping. No electricity. Campground is kept very clean. Awesome sunrises, sunsets and moon action over the sea. So happy to see that this kind of camping option is still available along the Tulum beach strip. Easy transportation into town even if you don't have a vehicle. Easy to rent a bike, too. Great people. Great place. $100MXN per person per night.

Look for the adorable man named Max! He was so sweet and showed us around and found someone to speak English for us so he knew we wanted to park our van and camp! He was cleaning the grounds first thing and was always smiling and waving when we saw him. There had been a review about an unfriendly owner but it was the guy who was at the check in. Ask for Max! Paid 100p per person :) Showers are primitive but lovely in the heat!

Morw of a spot for tenting like mentioned in the previous post, there was one flat spot to park the truck but it was right next to the busy road... sweet spot though, just not the vibe we were looking for at the moment. It probably doesn't help that its March so spring break is kicking off....maybe this would have been a better option in different months. We headed north to Chamicos about 15 minute north of tulum you can find it on ioverlander...much more chill and less people. Plenty of spots for our rig, right on the water.

The owner unfriendly. Said our truck is to big, doesn’t fit it. He didn’t care for us to stay in, although we would fit. Not a generous place for RVs. It’s better for tenting.

beach front location, small amount of parking space for small rigs and rtts. plenty of shady camping space. basic facilities but kept clean. friendly owner, max. 100pppn. beautiful beach. 1.5 km walk up to tulum archaeological site.

Report Check-In

Very nice camp, bathrooms are absolutely fine, and I'm quite fuzzy about bathrooms...
Still no dogs allowed.
It seems to be a lot better for tent camping so you can get closer to the beach where there's wind.
Mosquitoes seem to be resistant to DEET. Bring a Mosquito net, also lots of Tábanos, but a really beautiful place. No Colectivos running here you have to drive yourself or take a taxi if you want to go somewhere. Taxis are always 80 pesos, no matter how short the trip, no haggling.

No dogs allowed on any Tulum camp spot. We did not stay here.

Simple camping mostly tents and very small parking space for camper vans, right on beautiful beach, lots of nice shadey areas to string up hammock and relax. Dilapidated, grimey showers & banos but bareable, also communal kitchen area. Nice vibe overall & friendly host, would be greatly improved if there was more room for rigs but unfortunately I don't think that's what there going for here, also some noise from generator. 100 pesos per person.
